This is not so:

> conn=20539 op=1 SRCH base="dc=pca-wichita,dc=com" scope=2 
> filter="(&(objectClass=posixAccount)(uid=melisa$))"

This is a search, scope sub, for

> conn=20539 op=1 SEARCH RESULT tag=101 err=0 nentries=0 text=
> conn=20539 op=2 SRCH 

This is the log entry that says that no object is found. I.e., there is
either no combination of objectClass=posixAccount and uid=melisa$, or
the LDAP ACL prohibits it being read.

Do a search with 'ldapsearch -x' and the same filter. If it doesn't
return anything, the object probably doesn't exist. Don't get led astray
by nss, it's not used here.

The samba ldapsam backend and tools (not idealx) are first class and
brilliantly written.
